SA Water has celebrated World Toilet Day with the release of a fun and educational interactive app entitled, ‘Let the Poo Thru’.

SA Water Chief Executive John Ringham says the free app is part of SA Water’s broader wastewater campaign which aims to educate the community in helping to protect the state’s wastewater network.

“This interactive game has been designed for smart phones and tablets and provides an engaging and entertaining way to learn about what not to flush down the toilet,” he says.

“Every year SA Water has to remove significant number of items such as toys, food scraps and baby wipes from SA Water’s wastewater network.

“Protecting the wastewater network is important to all of us and this app is another way we can get this important message out there,” Mr Ringham says.

“The app is easy to use. It’s about deflecting inappropriate items from falling into the toilet so the pipe doesn’t get blocked and explode!”

“It’s a quirky way to engage customers to talk about an issue that generally isn’t discussed,” he says.

“The app also helps to promote the importance of sanitation and the work SA Water does to protect public health and our environment by treating wastewater, making it relevant to release on World Toilet Day,” Mr Ringham says.

“SA Water treats millions of litres of wastewater each year for recycled use. It’s important that by ensuring the right items go down the drain, we are able to make the most of this valuable resource,” he says.

The free app Let the Poo Thru is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
